[SciPy-dev] Site problems this morning

Good morning,

The problems this morning were from a DoS attack on Moin. The attacker crawled 
the site for long loading pages and then repeatedly accessed them.

I blocked the IP and disabled the pages that the attacker was using 
most(KlasseKlasse and PageHits).

I think a long term solution would be caching. The next version of Moin has 
more caching support.

Thanks,
Jeff
